Hi, i think i have jumped into the buying of my pup too quickly, instead of looking around for the best possible breeders i have jumped right in and bought a pup from an ad on Free ads, i had been looking for a while to purchase a new pup and fell in love with the cockapoo, i came across an add last week on Free ad and seen a lovely pic of what i think is a blue roan pup, When my partner called up an asked about the ad the breeder said he has only 1 pup left out of a litter of 4, and said he was the pup on his ad, (might i add i fell in love with him on first sight) My partner spoke to the breeder and they disscussed info on the pup and he seemed to be great.
My partner has gone to pick our pup up this morning and he called me a little earlier to say that it is'nt the pup on the ad but he's a black and white pup(i'm a little disappointed to be honest) but moreso that he didn't give the correct info (when i looked on the breeders web page their was a pic of the 4 pups ,this is now no longer on his site) their was a black and white one on this ad but my partner had told him that the ad that he had seen was on (free ad) so maybe he has genuinely made a mistake i'm not sure, but also the age of the pup is 12 weeks and not 9 like i had first thought, the pics must of been put on his site at the age of 8 weeks, but surely he should of told us the age of the pups now, i'm sure the new pup will be just as lovely as the one i was expecting(he's on his way home and should be here in about an hour) does anyone know the breeder/heard of him he's from lampeter in wales, this all could be just a misunderstanding between my partner and the breeder but as i said we just jumped right in so it's really our own fault, i wish i had come across this site alot earlier, but i can only learn from my mistakes.

Any info on the breeder if known would be great, the ad is still on free ads.

Thanks and sorry about the long post
Leanne.

Hi Leanne

Is this the one? http://www.freeads.co.uk/uk/buy__sell/pets/dogs/cockapoo/14997705/cockapoos-puppies-ready-now/view

That is a cute puppy, does look like a Blue Roan. Can see why that photo has been used.

Don't panic, I'm sure things will be ok - lots of good advice on here. Two things - £350 is very cheap, most pay around £800+ for a Cockapoo - the next, just get him to a vet to get him checked over ASAP.

Not trying to panic you, we took both our girls to the vet soon after collecting - it's a good thing to do regardless - if he is healthy, which he more than likely is, there are no problems.

Lots of advice on here, lots of helpful people.

As he is a little older than most when they leave Mum, his socialising may not be as good as it could be, but again this can be sorted - again lots of advice and help on here.

Ian

Hi
He does look a lovely puppy (if the black and white one is him). Has he had his vaccinations? If he's fully vaccinated you can start to take him out and socialise him straight away. I should still take him to your vet for a puppy check. I don't know enough myself to offer any other help but there are lots of people on here to advise you if you need it. Maybe this breeder sells at a lower price as there are a lot of breeders out there and Swansea may be a bit out of the way. Good luck.

Did your partner get to see the puppys mum and dad? And were they PRA checked?

As Ruby said a trip to the vets is needed to put your mind at rest.
My partner hasn't mentioned about the PRA check, he will be home shortly so i'l ask him some more question as he's driving home, he has the medical papers so i will have a look when he arrives.

Yes i think a trip to the vets will be a must...

Hi sorry no I haven't heard of that breeder but please take Ian's advice and get the puppy to a vet ASAP. Just for a clean bill of health and peace of mind for you. Has the breeder sent a puppy pack, with advice, food, blanket, 4 weeks insurance??

I think theres nothing really you can do now, I had a look on their webpage and they dont advertise that they breed cockapoo's?

I wouldnt purchase a puppy like this but to put your mind at rest a friend of mine has done the same thing and Bert is fine however she dosnt really know anything about his parentage and there were no health tests done so only time will tell.

Im sure all will be fine once you see him and get him checked over.

Hi, i know my partner has the pups medical records and pup food/insurance with pet plan for 4 weeks not sure on blanket, the breeder has told him to call if he ever wants any more advice so i think i will ask him to give him a ring when he gets home, apparently when my partner asked about the mum he said it was the sister of the show cocker on his site but who knows..
He may be fine and i've just got a really healthy/cheap cockapoo...
the breeder seems to breed westies so i dont know how he come about breeding cockapoos but my partner said the kennels were clean and the westies all looked fine too,also he microchipped him before he left and gave him a bath so he can't be all that bad can he?..:confused:

Thanks again for all your support

Shame that this has marred your little puppy's homecoming a bit. I am sure he will be fine, and you will soon be able to relax and enjoy him once the vet has checked him over:). Good luck with it. Look forward to some nice puppy pics soon.

Oh Leanne. What a worry for you. I'm sure everything will be ok. A black and white pup does sound very sweet. Please let us all know how he settles in with your bulldog and try get a vet appointment for tomorrow. - Try book it today. It will put your mind at rest knowing u have an appointment all ready for tomorrow - well it would me.

All the best Susie and Nacho x
